A Romantic stroll in Florence
Florence is one of Italy’s top destinations to visit and there are plenty of reasons why. This Tuscan city oozes history, culture, and Italians even know a thing or two about romance. Whether you have a day or week to spare, there are so many things to keep busy with. Visit the prominent art museum, Uffizi Gallery beside the statue of David in Piazza della Signoria, catch the best panoramic views of the city from Piazzale Michelangelo, wander Basilica di Santa Croce, and stroll through Giardino Bardini.
After your free walking tour with Freetour.com, climb to the top of Duomo for an alternative perspective of the city centre or admire the frescoes and architecture of the church from the inside. Just around the corner lies the famous leather market where you can find perfect souvenirs and practice your bartering skills. Celebrate your new finds with gelato, slice of pizza, or indulge in a Florentine steak at the many restaurants accompanied by a large glass of red wine. If nightlife is your thing, grab an aperitivo for dinner and then discover the countless bars across the centre.
There are annual events throughout the year which is why travelling to Florence in any season is ideal. In April, the whole city is alive for an entire evening called “Notte Bianca”- or “White Night”- dedicated to the arts & culture. Gorgeous city that caters to anyone, should see it for yourself!
